內臟脂肪在技術上是過多的腹內脂肪組織積累。它被稱為“深層”脂肪,比“皮下”的腹部脂肪儲存在皮膚下更深。它是包裹肝臟,胰臟和腎臟等內臟器官的凝膠狀脂肪形式。但是,這種脂肪非常接近肝臟,可以變成膽固醇。從那裡,內臟脂肪通過血液。它可能沿著動脈壁收集。這導致動脈變得狹窄​​(稱為動脈粥樣硬化)。過多的內臟脂肪會導致炎症和高血壓,從而增加嚴重健康問題的風險。內臟脂肪與代謝紊亂以及心血管疾病和2型糖尿病的風險增加有關。

內臟脂肪的另一個問題是它對脂聯保素或“脂肪激素”的影響。脂聯素是一種特殊的激素,在調節血糖水平和脂肪酸分解中起著至關重要的作用。內臟脂肪抑制脂聯素,當脂聯素水平低時,身體會積聚不健康的脂肪,並可能發生胰島素抵抗。

過多的內臟脂肪與以下風險增加有關:

  • 心髒病
  • 癌症
  • 中風
  • 癡呆症
  • 糖尿病
  • 憂鬱症
  • 關節炎
  • 肥胖
  • 性功能障礙
  • 睡眠障礙

什麼導致內臟脂肪?

當血液中葡萄糖過多,細胞已經充滿糖原時,葡萄糖被儲存為脂肪。當食用精製加工的碳水化合物和含糖食物時,這種情況會發生得更容易及快速。加工過的澱粉如白麵包或白米,以及高糖食品,會迅速轉化為進入血液的單醣,並引發胰腺從胰腺釋放更多的胰島素。其結果通常是使體重增加,引起更多的飢餓感,導致持續的暴飲暴食和惡性循環,使得難以停止吃甜食。因此,當血液胰島素水平經常及長時間持高,人體積累多餘脂肪的可能性就越大。

 

如何測量內臟脂肪?

解決內臟脂肪問題的唯一方法是進行MRI(核磁共振成像)或CT scan(電腦斷層掃描),這對於兩者都是昂貴的,而且不是醫學上必需的。不過,據美國醫學會雜誌報導,如果男性的腰圍超過40英寸(102厘米),女性的腰圍超過35英寸(89厘米),那表示您有過多的腹部脂肪了。
